Because the Lord disciplines those he loves,
as a father the
son he delights in.
~Proverbs 3:12 (NIV)
“Blessed is the man whom God corrects;
so do not despise the discipline of the Almighty
For he wounds, but he also binds up;
he injures, but his hands also heal."
~Job 5:17-18 (NIV)
Blessed is the man you discipline, O Lord,
the man you teach from your law;
you grant him relief from days of trouble,
till a pit is dug for the wicked.
~Psalm 94:12-13 (NIV)
When we are judged by the Lord, we are being disciplined so that we will not be condemned with the world.
~1 Corinthians 11:32 (NIV)
